Prep work: Begin by unrolling and laying out the wrapping paper flat. Cut the paper to the correct length of your aisle. Once you have decided on a design for your aisle, begin to draw it out on the paper. We chose a tribal print with easy triangle cut outs for a simpler, clean design.

After you have your design drawn on the paper, place cardboard or cutting mat underneath the paper to protect the surface you are using. Using the utility knife, follow the design you have mapped out and remove all unwanted paper remains.

Ready to use: Lay your completed paper runner down on the ground and begin sprinkling flour in the cutouts. You may choose to use a flour sifter for a more controlled application.

Once you have sprinkled flour in all cutouts, slowly and carefully remove the paper runner to avoid excess flour from tarnishing the design you have created.
